New York TV News Legend Moves Into Acting Role NY Post
A veteran TV reporter who recently left her longtime job with New York station WNBC-TV will try her hand at acting, the New York Post reports.
Sue Simmons, who signed off from WNBC after three decades at the station, will guest-star in the season opener of NBC's "Law & Order: SVU," the story reports.
Simmons plays a character by the same name who is seen reporting from the scene of a scandal involving the NYPD, the DA's office and two escort agencies, the story notes.
"Sue opens the episode doing a news stand-up from outside 1 Police Plaza. We’ll bring her back for the second episode of the two-parter," said "SVU" executive producer Warren Leight.
The season premiere resolves the finale of "SVU’s” finale from last season, "Rhodium Nights," in which Capt. Cragen discovers a dead prostitute in his bed, the story notes.
As previously reported, Simmons exited WNBC in June after the station opted not to renew her contract.
